Ingredients

3 limes, juiced

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 teaspoon mild chili powder

¾ cup olive oil

Salt

Pepper

6 ears of corn, husks and silks removed

3 cups cherry tomatoes, halves

½ cup diced red onion

½ cup fresh cilantro

Preparation

In a large bowl whisk together the lime juice, ground cumin and chili powder. Pour in the ¾ cup olive oil in a slow, steady stream whisking to make a vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper.

Prepare a medium hot fire in a grill. Brush a little olive oil on each ear of corn. Grill the corn, turning until lightly charred.

On a cutting board, cut down along the cob to strip off the kernels. Put the kernels in a large bow. Add the tomatoes, onion, cilantro and vinaigrette. Toss to coat, and serve immediately.
